A lighthearted story about change and how we navigate it

The best thing about being a vampire bat is scaring all the other animals. With enough practice, Manny hopes to become the scariest vampire bat in the world. But his world is rocked when his baby fangs fall out, and no one thinks he's all that scary anymore. How will Manny handle this unexpected turn of events? This is a lighthearted look at what happens when things don't go the way we plan, and how friendship can spring up in the most unexpected ways.


Praise for I See, I Touch "Especially notable." —Booklist  Babies and toddlers will want to do more than just see this book—let them touch!" —Kirkus Reviews "For new readers, this is an eye-catching and delightfully interactive introduction to the senses." —Booklist

"This story is one to which many readers can relate, with its theme of fitting in and finding friends. Manny is quite the likable antihero. The story itself has just the right beat, not dwelling too long or moving too quickly. Wonderfully rich vocabulary… a subtle message of being oneself… Surprisingly charming and with delightful illustrations." —Kirkus Reviews
